Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. You may be thinking of avoiding walking under ladders and stepping on cracks, but what about the movie franchise? The first film in the series was released on May 9, 1980 and has remained popular with fans since. The trademark hockey goalie mask Jason Vorhees wears has become one of the most recognizable symbols in the horror genre. Why not have a Friday the 13th movie marathon? When you’re done watching Jason terrorize damn near everyone that visits Camp Crystal Lake, check out what’s going on this weekend in the Triad.
